Just Land Somewhere

I remember when I was little that although I was chubby I could move around pretty good.  My mother would often say to me, “Will you just “light” somewhere?!”  I’m not even sure how to spell that, but what she meant was land somewhere, stay in the same spot for a few minutes.  As I look over Monday, it seems I needed “light” somewhere.

I got my pinto beans in the crock pot when I first got up.  After posting on BCDC, I was up and out.  I had things to do.  First thing, was a wonderful treat.  My best friend, Gail had given me a Dunkin’ Donuts coupon that allowed me a free iced coffee every Monday in October!

It even includes the first Monday in November!  It was a little out-of-the-way from my errands, but for free I decided it was worth it. 

Can you say pumpkin spice?!?  It was so good and fueled me through my errands.

I headed first to the produce stand to re-stock.  Romaine, plum tomatoes, apples, potatoes, red bell peppers, and strawberries.  All that for just a little over $11.  I was excited.

Next I headed to Wal-mart for the rest of my grocery shopping.  I kept myself very much under control.  Only splurge was to buy some Sriracha sauce because I found I loved it so much in New Mexico.

This will go a long way and spice up a lot of things!!

When I got home from shopping I did a few things and didn’t get around to eating my overnight oats until Noon! 

With strawberries fresh from the produce stand.  Hey, it was just as good for lunch!

I made a green tea mix that I’d heard about a few months ago.  If I remember correctly it comes from the Carb Lovers Diet and is supposed to help you lose weight.  I’m not trying to promote that diet and I don’t really know anything about it.  This just sounded tasty and good for me. 

Eight cups of green tea (they don’t say, but I used 8 tea bags.  I boiled 4 cups of water, let the bag steep, then added 4 cups of cold.)  You then add the juice of an orange, a lemon and a lime.  I was lucky and all of the fruit was very juicy.  I added some store brand stevia to it and it’s pretty tasty.   I may add more stevia, but I like it.  The fruit is good for me (and it’s free!) and so is the green tea.  I think I’ll do this again!

Pinto beans cooked to perfection in the crock pot and ready to keep me filled up for the week!

Boy, this is definitely a post for the Human Randomizer!  Anyway…

I wanted to share my treasures from the rummage sale on Saturday.

A teeny tiny Cuisinart mini-processor!!  Did you notice the price??  $1!!! I couldn’t believe it.  It looks like there might be something missing on top, but I just need it for the basics so I don’t really care.  I think I’ll be able to make hummus, now.  So Excited!!

Also 2 great bags for $1 each!!  The first one is much roomier than it looks.  I’ll be able to carry my mini computer in there as well as regular purse things all at the same time.  The second one has an elephant on it and is also very roomy.  So excited to get such a good deal!!

This morning, I’m trying to get myself more focused.  I do have issues with that, don’t I??  I decided it was time to pull out some fall decor, starting with my cool mugs…

Very cool!  I realized I have several different ones.  Makes coffee even more fun, if that’s possible!!

Off to face the day…

Happy Tuesday!!  Focus…Focus…
